Keyboard backspace launches Start Menu instead of backspacing in a document

Running Windows 7 Professional SP-1 64-bit, the backspace key on my keyboard has started behaving as if I had clicked "Start" on the Start Menu.  I have tried disabling hot keys, but that didn't change this behavior.  Please advise how to fix this.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Look in Windows 7 Ease of Access and perhaps turn that function OFF as a test.
